Friday Cat Blogging – 20 November 2009

We have a winner in our cat cover contest!  Though actually it was a tie.  There were two cats who received the same number of votes, but one of them turned out to be an internet cat while the other one is (I hope) a real live cat belonging to a real live MoJo reader.  It was also my favorite cat cover of the bunch.  So by the awesome tiebreaking power vested in me as final coverblogging judge, I declare the winner of our cat cover contest to be Ginger, possibly the smuggest looking cat I’ve ever seen.  All hail Ginger!

The dynamic duo will be back next week.  In the meantime, if you’re Ginger’s owner, email me to claim your prize.  Have a good weekend, all.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
